How did Faroese fishermen see Greenland and the Greenlanders during their seasonal stays on West Greenlandic shores from 1926 to 1972? How did regulations and rules affect the relations? The fishermen’s own accounts and interviews primarily deal with issues related to the fishing; however, they also tell about occasional meetings with Greenlandic people that give some information about how Faroese people see Greenland and Greenlanders. These fishermen’s accounts about their Green¬landic experiences have become an important part of Faroese literature and culture. They contain distinct post-colonial elements, and they form a masculine culture of memory serving the Faroese nation building.
